Macros (.cs)

Updated: 13 May 2019

Macros are recorded or manually created .cs files stored in the folder defined by the XS_MACRO_DIRECTORY advanced option. In Tekla Structures, start macros from the Applications & components Catalog.

Macros are C# source files (.cs) that are compiled at run-time. 

Macros can, for example, be used for creating drawings or reports. Macros are also sometimes used to run an application.
